Last month, it was announced that Toni Braxton’s memoir Un-Break My Heart would get the Lifetime movie treatment. Now it’s been revealed via The Grio that Stitchers actress Tiffany Hines has been cast to play Toni’s sister Tamar in the film.
Hines tweeted over the weekend, “Yay! So excited to be a part of the new movie! #UnbreakmyHeart Dat Braxton life y'all!” In the past, Hines also had a reoccurring role on the FOX series Bones.
Un-Break My Heart will highlight Toni’s rise to fame as a 90s R&B songstress, her struggles with lupus, financial troubles, her divorce, and dealing with her son’s autism. In the film, Toni will star as herself as well as executive produce. Vondie Curtis Hall (Abducted: The Carline White Story, Waist Deep) will direct.
She certainly has the look, but do you think Hines will be able to capture Tamar’s big personality?
